ABOUT

WE BELIEVE TRAINING SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE PLACE

WITH QUALIFIED INSTRUCTION  IN A DOJO.  

STUDY AND LEARNING NOW ALSO TAKES PLACE ONLINE - 24/7 -

LEADING TO MORE TRAINING AT HOME.

BOTH WORK BRILLIANTLY TOGETHER.

Our organisation is made up of people with a wealth of Japanese Budo experience in various countries over many, many years.

 

We all believe that people involved in traditional Japanese Budo deserve to be given the opportunity to have access to some of the best teachers available across all disciplines in the form of Dojo Leaders who have become part of our Dojo Community and other teacheers who have associated themselves with us.

 

We operate a policy of inclusivity - we wish for your involvement in what we are doing.

We respect the autonomy of all Dojo and their Teachers, Instructors and Dojo Leaders.

We only serves to associate ourselves and all that we have to offer with those who wish to be associated with us.
